7:46 am
from san francisco. you can see the low clouds in place, but you can see the sun rays just beaming through and hitting the water. love that shot. we will be partly cloudy in san francisco for the entire day, mostly cloudy for the coast. the rest of us will clear out a little bit later this morning and into the first half of the afternoon, but, again, it's going to be a little bit cooler as frank mentioned. temperatures this morning starting out very similar, but by the afternoon three to 6 degrees of cooling expected for those afternoon highs. here's a look at the onshore winds and, again, we always look towards fairfield to see what is going on with that gust to 35 miles per hour reported at travis, that cool pacific air being pumped all the way inland, all the way into the sacramento and san joaquin valley. as we get through the morning hours, by about noontime, mostly sunny, north bay, east bay into the south bay, take a look what's going on here, san francisco could be partly to mostly cloudy all the way through about lunchtime and at the coast we are expected to be mostly cloudy as well. the clouds don't clear back any farther than that, they sort of
7:47 am
hover in that area and by about 6:00 it looks like the low clouds want to already move back inland so if you have evening plans be prepared, the clouds may come back sooner than they have been in recent days. meanwhile the temperature time stamp shows you it's a mild one, 60s at the coast, upper 60s, low 70s for the east bay shoreline and our inland community 70s and 80s with the shade of red indicating the 90s are nowhere in sight. here's a look at the temperatures right now, 52 to start your morning in san rafael, 56 in napa, 57 for livermore, 60 degrees hayward. along the peninsula right now, 61 for palo alto, san francisco checking in at 56, mostly cloudy, 57 half moon bay. the afternoon highs today, a mild one in the north bay. if you're going to be spending time here, nice day to be outdoors, 74 for novato, 74 in petaluma, a festival going on i believe in petaluma today, 71 in san leandro, 75 castro valley. a nice day at the coliseum, upper 60s in the forecast.

out here for about 45 minutes, getting everybody in, flipping them around and getting them back out again. >> it's an art form to get it done and these guys have perfected it. >> it's been perfected over time but make no mistake, what happened here -- what happens here is more than just a golf tournament. >> i'm a two time testicular cancer survivor. i started a golf tournament called have a ball, you got to have a sense of humor with it. >> he keeps it light but bob hammer's battle with cancer is sobering. >> i was 29 years old and we -- i had just gotten married, my wife was pregnant with our daughter. i was coaching a track team, i was playing softball four nights a week, i was the picture of health and felt something funny and two days later i had a testicle removed and kind of a little bit of a shock. >> more shocking was that his first battle with cancer wouldn't be his last. >> it came back 15 months later. i had a tumor the size of a
7:55 am
cantaloupe with a cucumber going up into my neck so i collapsed. i was wrapping my daughter's christmas present, i collapsed and went to the hospital and ended up going through 26 rounds of chemo over the next nine months. my mom died on christmas day in 1977 when i was nine. so that day when it came back for me, obviously, it triggered some emotion and made me think that this might be my calling too. >> it would not be his calling. he was only given a 10% chance to live but he fought and he survived. and that was when he first decided to give back with a golf tournament. >> i had a goal of raising $2500 and sending some cash to the live strong foundation and ended up raising $52,000 that first year. and here we are 12 years later and $2.2 million raised and we are benefiting 22 different
7:56 am

7:57 am
cancer, some did not and others are still fighting. >> how we live our life has been altered forever from this event and from this diagnosis and what it turned into and what we have turned this into. >> what an incredible guy. i guess you want to beat cancer, everyone says attitudes have to battle and if you can get past that, you're halfway home. >> and really he does this, he and his wife out of his garage, they raised over $2 million. they are not really asking for anyone to join the golf tournament. they have a waiting list of people but what he's hoping is people hear the story, hear about the golf tournament and then look at one of these groups or organizations and say i want to donate or i want to help or just raise awareness. >> right. and a sense of humor too. >> yes, he does have one. great guy. >> good stuff, bob. coming up, a horrible crash scene down in the south bay. up next, the search for a hit- and-run driver that's responsible for sending three people to the hospital early

8:01 am
apparently had a medical episode that required her to leave the ceremony early. now, there was a law enforcement source who actually saw what happened and told fox news that she appeared to faint on her way to her van and had to be helped by security. so we will continue to try to get more information on what is happening with her and keep you updated. welcome to mornings on 2. it is sunday, september 11th. i'm claudine wong. >> good morning, everyone, i'm frank malikotte. the first memorial ceremonies happening just two hours ago. >> now, this was 8:46 this morning eastern time so 5:46 our time. the moment of silence held in new york city where people observed this silence for when the first plane hit the north tower. >> and then the ceremonial reading of names then began and an honor guard made up of people representing the new york city fire, their police, of course, and other emergency

8:03 am
how should we market? are we doing enough to remember it and that is why we ask this question of the day. do you feel like your community is doing enough to honor or to remember the attacks and honor the victims and then so we had a facebook user browning phillips who said i feel as if people have lost a sense of unity like this country is being torn apart from within. we used to all stand together. now we are identifying as groups. again, it needs to stop. >> and another facebook user, kimberly johnson writes my eight and 11-year-olds know exactly what happened and we honor the lives lost that tragic day every year on 9/11, we wear our red, our white and blue, fly our flag and i tell them where i was and how i felt. it's an important date in history where we all stood as one. first time ever that every house on the street flew their flag for weeks. we must never forget. of course you can join the conversation as well. we urge you to do so. search ktvu channel 2 on your facebook page and we will post more responses throughout the

8:05 am
because they are already warm. it's the spectators because it's cold out there and cool. >> what else is new, right? >> in san francisco you run in layers. everyone knows. look, see the volunteers are smart, they are wearing the double layers of the shirts with the sleeves underneath. >> but eventually it's all going to go away and we are going to have a little sunshine in the city, at least that's what rosemary says, right . >> i'm calling for partly cloudy. >> are you hedging or do we not know what we are talking about yet? >> i'm going to go with you guys are really busy this morning. it's okay if you don't pay attention to me. i'll handle the weather. did you notice the man running with the flag? >> yes. >> yes. a good reminder to get out there and as you spend your day be kind to each other, appreciate what we have here at home. and the bay area, giving you a look there at a few peeks of blue. we have the onshore breeze with us, a long stronger this morning than it has been. those clouds, a lot more widespread into the east bay where yesterday morning areas

8:24 am
from thirst, drinking open seawater. >> floating around with their mouths open and full of sores and their eyes were all -- it was not a good scene. guys would swim away, come on, there's -- we will let you on but feed you but you can't get on or something like that and then swim away and never see them again. >> they were hallucinating? >> yeah. >> reporter: on the fourth day a navy plane spotted the men and a rescue ship soon arrived on scene. >> and they would pull up alongside and threw a jacobs ladder over the side and said can you climb up, sailor? i said, hell, ya. i couldn't even lift my arms out the water. so two guys jumped in the water and got me out. >> reporter: for the next two or three days he fell into a deep sleep as the ship headed to a navy hospital in the philippines. >> the guy cleaned me up -- held me up cleaning the oil out of my eyes and i grabbed his
